THE United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has injected $1, 2 million for the rehabilitation of infrastructure at Shurugwi town as well as computerisation of the local authority, the town council chairperson has said.

Tsungai Makore said the rehabilitation project started in October and will continue until November next year. Makore said the project is being carried under UNICEF’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene program and that Shurugwi is among the 14 towns benefitting under the program.

“The project will witness an improvement in Shurugwi’s infrastructure as well as computerisation to improve the billing system,” Makore said.

“We have also managed to rehabilitate obsolete water pipes as well as revamping public toilets with the fund.”

He said his council will acquire equipment to be used in waste management in order to maintain a clean environment around the scenic town.

He added: “At the end of the day this will see improved service delivery and address health related problems affecting the municipality,” said Makore.

Early this year Shurugwi Town Council signed an investment deal with a local construction company, Inducto-Serve, for the building of a three storey state-of-the-art shopping mall in the mining town.
